Over the last few months, Sony has revealed plenty of details on the upcoming PlayStation VR2, showing its new Sense controller before then unveiling the virtual reality headset itself. Even so, given the fact that the vast majority of this has come via blog posts and a handful of images, PlayStation fans are still more than a little hungry for further details on the upcoming hardware.
When those will arrive remains to be seen, but the wheels are certainly in motion behind-the-scenes, as developers get to work on new games made for PSVR2. One such developer is nDreams, known for the likes of Fracked, Phantom: Covert Ops, Far Cry VR: Dive Into Insanity, and more.
In a recent update announcing a $35 million investment into the studio from the newly set-up Aonic Group, nDreams stated that it’s current crop of in-development projects is the developer’s “strongest line-up”, before adding that it’s got “exciting future projects already in development, including next-gen games for the much anticipated PlayStation VR2.”
What those projects will turn out to be is anyone’s best guess, though nDreams has had a solid track record in the VR space, so there’s reason to be optimistic.
Not many games have been officially announced for PSVR2 so far, with the exception of Horizon Call of the Mountain and Truant Pixel’s RUNNER. Rumours have claimed that a PSVR2 version of Half-Life: Alyx is also in the works, but take that one with a grain of salt for now.
As for backward compatibility, Sony has remained tight-lipped regarding whether the new headset will be able to play games in the original PSVR’s library.
Recent leaks have also suggested that PSVR2 launch in Q1 of next year- read more on that through here.
